Operational Expert Will Focus on Private Equity Firms

SAN RAMON, CA (January 24, 2013) – ArmaninoLLP ( – the 35th largest accounting and business consulting firm in the United States and a provider of integrated consulting, technology and accounting services – today announced it has named private equity executive Don Miller as managing director, Private Equity Solutions. Miller will lead Armanino’s industry practice focused on supporting private equity firms and their portfolio businesses.

Miller has more than a dozen years of experience as an operating partner in private equity, most recently as partner and Portfolio Group director at Huntsman Gay Global Capital, headquartered in Palo Alto. During his private equity tenure, Miller developed and deployed tools similar to those utilized by Armanino in the areas of effective planning, budgeting and business intelligence, noted Matt Armanino.

“I am thrilled to be working with Armanino, which is one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking business consulting firms in the nation,” Miller said. “The firm is a thought leader in the deployment of cloud applications that accelerate business improvement.
